Oman Air Training reaffirms its commitment to passenger safety

Posted 29 April 2016 · Add Comment

Oman Air has reaffirmed its commitment to passenger safety by providing additional refresher training for key staff.

Working in partnership with Zurich-based aviation security specialists Checkport Switzerland, Oman Air’s Security Department has delivered “Security Aircraft Search” training for 36 personnel drawn from across the airline’s international network. Participants will then cascade the relevant techniques and information to other operational crew. 

The training involved theoretical and practical syllabuses which combined classroom-based sessions and practical training conducted onboard Oman Air’s aircraft. It aimed to provide Oman Air’s security personnel with the knowledge and skills they need to conduct fast and efficient aircraft searches in line with international standards. 

The classroom-based sessions covered a range of issues which have a direct impact on the roles of airline security experts., search procedures, communications between search teams and their leaders, instant emergency response, professional documentation and quality control measures. 

The on-site exercise took place at Muscat International Airport. Prior to search exercises being carried out, it included group familiarisation of the entirety of aircraft interiors, reminders of the importance of instant emergency response, leadership and the allocation of individual role. The results of the searches were then analysed during a post-exercise briefing, before a summary of the course content was provided to delegates. 

Commenting on the course, Lt. Col. Ali Bin Abdulla Al Harthy Vice President Security at Oman Air said: 

“Oman Air is in agreement with Checkport for security training on annual basis depending on Oman Air’s request. The field of the training varies in accordance to Oman Air’s requirement within the “Aviation Security” discipline We intend to acquire further trainings for our team on various aspects of security throughout this venture with Checkport. 

“There are similar security trainings conducted for the team along with various stakeholders.”
